Sunwayfoto PCLO-R5 on Canon EOS R5

Just a week after the announcement of the modular Sunwayfoto PCL-R5 Custom L Bracket for Canon EOS R5 and R6 mirrorless cameras, a solid one piece model was also introduced, the PSLO-R5 we see here intended mostly for the US market.
Except for being lighter and some minor details the dimensions and shape of this L bracket are almost identical to the PCL-R5, while the design of the anti-twist mechanism reminds me a lot of the Sunwayfoto Custom L Bracket for Canon EOS R the PCL-R.

The recent introduction of the Canon EOS R5 and R6 Full Frame mirrorless models, made quite an impact in the market with the controversial statement about the previous R series models giving their place to a more positive attitude.
Nonetheless, Canon has managed once again to get into the center of attention with great demand. Which demand in turn made a Custom L Bracket a must have.

Hejnar Photo new Arca Style QR Plate Dedicated to Fujifilm X-T4

Hejnar Photo D054 QR Plate on Fuji X-T4

Hejnar PHOTO has just announced the release of their D054 Quick Release Plate dedicated to the  Fujifilm X-T4 Interchangeable Lens mirror-less camera.

Nonetheless, the D054 is quite different in design than the D042 that was originally developed for the Fujifilm X-T3. 
Major difference between the recent Fujifilm models and older models is the relocation of the tripod socket under the lens center axis, thus making the fitting for a QR plate quite easier but still there has to be clearance for the battery door.

Sunwayfoto YLS-G3 supporting Sigma 800 mm EX DG APO beast

Some of the older SCV Photography Ideas readers may recall a series of articles engaged with solutions for the stabilization of long telephoto lenses via Long Lens Support Brackets (LLSBs).

But what happens when you want to support a real monster like the SIGMA 800 mm f/5.6 EX DG APO HSM lens? Well trust me a simple bracket as the ones we have seen up to now is not enough then.
Triggered by user demand, Sunwayfoto has gone all the way in introducing a series of Long Lens Support Kits named YLS-G1 through G3 addressing different lens lengths. Their largest model YLS-G3 capable of supporting the Sigma beast is in review here.
